HARRIET BEECHER STOWE by Joan D. Hedrick
NON-FICTION
Released: Jan. 1, 1994

"A splendid, balanced representation of an author in her many roles, and of the way she changed her world."
In this definitive biography, Hedrick (History/Trinity; Solitary Comrade, 1982) applies a feminine perspective to the fascinating life and tumultuous times of Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-96), author of what's arguably the most influential novel in history and someone who only 50 years ago was described as "A Crusader in Crinoline'' (by Robert F. Wilson in the last full-length Stowe bio, published in 1941). Read full book review >
